The article presents news regarding recent developments in legislation of bonds in the southwest region of the US. It reports that Perry County voters on January 25 will weigh in on a $3.4 million bond referendum that would allow county officials to levy a 1% sales and use tax to finance a new jail. Officials say that growth in the Little Rock areas means that Perry County can expect a population boom in coming years. Also, a group of Little Rock-area leaders is working to create regional authorities that have the power to request new taxes that could be used back bonds for transportation projects. Regional authorities would also be allowed to petition the Arkansas Highway Commission for designation as regional toll authorities.
